Cherry Stout

An export stout with the added twang of sour cherries, this beer was our first foray into using fruit in our brews. We crafted a solid stout and let it ferment. Then in the secondary, we racked the stout right onto a bed of cherry purée. The yeast fermented the cherries, leaving only a touch of cherry flavor and a bite of sourness.

food pairingsTry our cherry stout with a bit of vanilla ice cream, or some black forest cake.
